Organization description:
Inspired Life Centers, Inc. received its tax determination letter in 1977 as a 501(c)3 faith-based public charity. This unique status gives us the ability to sponsor a broad range of project-types, with maximum flexibility in structuring the legal context, support and participation of a qualified project. Once Inspired Life has granted fiscal-sponsorship to qualifying projects, we provide a path or strategy towards successful project funding. We match the capital needs of a project with our social investors, nonprofits, corporate sponsors and government grant sources. For our strategic partners and investors, we originate investment opportunity that meets social investment criteria and provide project oversight, if required. For individuals and enterprises already established and profitable we facilitate moving them from "success to significance."
